The Liebster Award is an award created by bloggers, for bloggers. It’s passed from person to person in order to encourage and help readers discover new blogs.


The rules of the award are:

  1. Answer 11 questions provided by your nominator.
  2. Choose some of your favorite bloggers and link them to your blog post.
  3. Ask 11 questions to the bloggers you nominate
  4. Inform the bloggers you nominate directly on their blog

  1. What made you start blogging?
    • I read food blogs for a loooooooong time before starting my own, and my favourite reads were Our Best Bites, Iowa Girl Eats, Simply Scratch, Kath Eats Real Food, The Oatmeal Artist, and the Pioneer Woman Cooks. The list goes on, actually! Later on, I discovered Minimalist Baker, Cookie and Kate, Ambitious Kitchen, and Half Baked Harvest. Slowly, I developed a love for recipes and baking – I wanted to start working on my own and sharing them with others. It’s also a good way to record memorable meals and things you’ve done – like a special photo journal. It’s so rewarding!
  2. What is your personal end goal from your blog?
    • Personal growth and a lovely food journal that I can look back on when I’m older. Plus, it’s so relaxing and therapeutic to organize recipes and share photos. I love the connections I’ve made with other bloggers with similar interests and I think the foodie community on the blogosphere is so supportive.
  3. What/who is your motivation to work hard?
    • Deadlines, success, relief, accomplishment, and okay, chocolate. I think working hard is rewarding in itself – the chase is often better than the catch!
  4. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
    • Paris! I still can’t believe I will actually BE in City of Lights in less than a week. So I’m going to have to say Greece, Italy, and Hawaii, in that order!
  5. What is your philosophy on life on Earth?
    • I’m only seventeen! This question is too deep for me!😉 HELP!
  6. What is your philosophy on food?
    • Eat what makes you and your body happy. Explore and enjoy food. Eating is a pleasure rather than a punishment. Learn to cook and bake, then impress your friends while having fun and doing the world’s most rewarding hobby.🙂
  7. What is one the most memorable moments of your life?
    • I have many! Visiting temples in China with my sister in grade five, receiving my big scholarship to the University of Waterloo, and spending time with my family. I definitely don’t have ONE most memorable moment – I try hard to remember and cherish them all, which is challenging at times!
  8. What are your favorite musical artists?
    • I don’t listen to much music, to be honest! I find that music distracts me, and I don’t find it necessary. If a song is on the radio and I’m neutral to it (which I am for most songs!), I don’t mind. Overplayed songs, however, tend to drive me crazy! Except for Uptown Funk. Never tire of that one. Some artists I enjoy listening to are Sia, One Republic, Maroon 5, Avril Lavigne, Leona Lewis, and Kelly Clarkson. My sister plays songs by these artists all the time and I’ve grown used to them.🙂 My true musical love, however, is DISNEY! Disney music is the best without a doubt.
  9. What is your greatest aspiration in life?
    • I want to be happy and make others happy! I’d love to be a paediatrician or dietitian, or maybe a teacher. I also want to travel the world and see as much as I can before starting a family. Oh – and go on a hot air balloon!
  10. If you were a food what would you be, and why?
    • This is a hard question. If I got this question at an interview I’d probably be screwed and I can’t even think of an answer now, in the peaceful place I call my computer room… I’d have to say I’d probably be a pecan. They can be sweet, salty, spicy and sour. Some people hate pecans and others can’t eat them at all. Most people love pecans, luckily, and they’re good on anything! I’m a pretty flexible, yet stubborn person and I like being spontaneous. Kinda like a pecan.
  11. What/who makes you truly happy?
    • Chocolate cheesecakes, almond croissants, and my family and close friends. I also find that helping others, whether that’s flashing a supportive smile or free babysitting, is a rewarding way to get positive and confident vibes. Accomplishing something important (especially if it’s far before a deadline!) and having a good laugh are also up there. Oh – and learning and experiencing new cultures while travelling.
